Carana Beach Hotel

A boutique hotel with the Seychelles spirit

A perfectly located family owned, small boutique hotel situated on the north east coast of Mahe, rests Carana Beach Hotel. The hotel only has 40 chalets all light, bright and airy, when you open the terrace doors and spill out to views of the turquoise ocean and surrounding jungle. For more privacy we'd recommend upgrading to the Ocean View Chalets with their own private plunge pool. Carana Beach Hotel's main pool is the perfect spot to rest up on a cabana and enjoy the food and drink service, enjoy casual dining at the main bar and in the evening the main restaurant is the idyllic spot to enjoy the warm sea breeze whilst sampling the menu inspired and sourced from the family owners farm. The small spa is a haven of relaxation and wellness contributing to your true Seychellois experience.

We expected more

Austria

Absolutely potential upwards. Considering the prices are not cheap, you can expect more in terms of cleanliness (finger smudge test on the TV, picture frame, Simms showed thick layers of dust). Music is in vain, neither in the lounge, the pool bar not even in the room, there are no radio stations in the "Multimedia". Instead, we were recommended by the manager to load an app on the phone and listen to it via the phone. There is wine - if any - of every sort on the wine list only one bottle per day, that could be better organized by the management. The "minibar" is actually just an empty fridge. The water heater has failed once, after three complaints and a waiting time of almost 12 hours, it worked again. Value for money are not in an adequate relationship, we would not book again.

Breakfast buffet

Excellent buffet. The location of the restaurant is superb. Service was of high standard, starting from the booking till the day of the breakfast. Nanette received us very well. We'll certainly be coming back.
